“To keep Longbottom company?” Severus rose to his full height, slowly, in the way that usually had obstreperous students wetting themselves. “He is neither the only student in this class nor the only Gryffindor. Company indeed!”

“Company is good for everyone, sir,” said Lovegood, adjusting the miniaturized vegetable marrows that were this week's earrings. “Besides, Neville's gran doesn't like the only other Gryffindor who actually needs the extra work, so Neville isn't supposed to talk to him. We're here to make sure he doesn't attract gristlethwicks and silver-legged teatrays.”

“Gristlethwicks?”

“They're attracted by tears, sir,” said Lovegood.

Severus watched as the dunderheads who had been assigned to a summer potions class shuffled out after the first lecture. Some students he had expected (Goyle, who could barely work his sums let alone follow a recipe), others he had actively dreaded (why couldn't Longbottom's grandmother hire a private tutor?), but two -

“Miss Weasley. Miss Lovegood. A word.” Severus waited for the youngest Weasley and the only Lovegood to make their way to his desk. “What you are doing here? Neither of you require extra study.”

The girls hesitated, then Ginny Weasley answered. “To keep Neville company, sir.”

Challenge 760: Snape and The Silver Trio

This group caused Snape plenty of trouble, I'm sure, especially during his year as Headmaster of Hogwarts. How did he manage them? How were his interactions with them? For our purposes, since there is some controversy about who's in this group, the Silver Trio are Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood, and Neville Longbottom. So, however you see it, this week we discuss Snape and the Silver Trio.

Challenge: Order of the Phoenix

Excerpt from Witch Weekly's “Party Central” gossip column:

...the collation afterward, however, was marred by a quarrel between Mrs. Harry Potter and her brother Ronald after Ronald spiked the non-alcoholic punch, as Mrs. Potter had just learned that a little Potter is on the way. “Bat Bogey isn't nearly enough!” she cried before covering her brother with slime.

Deputy Headmaster Severus Snape, when asked for comment, simply shrugged and said, “I told Minerva this was a bad idea” before summoning an elf to clean up after Master Teddy Lupin, in wolf form, lifted his leg against a card table....

My dear Minerva,

Be that as it may, if you want to have a party, call it a party, not a “collation.” I've already heard rumors that female invitees are ordering tea dresses and white gloves, at least the ones who are past the first bloom of youth. The only one I can imagine looking elegant instead of foolish in such a get up is Fleur Weasley, likely because she's French and not from the West Country.

As for me, I may well come simply to observe the chaos when someone spikes the punch with your “selection of alcohol.”

Severus

Reply to Severus Snape's reply to Minerva McGonagall's invitation, from Minerva McGonagall, via an extremely annoyed barn owl:

Dear Severus:

Just because you are an atheist doesn't mean that everyone else is. Services of Thanksgiving are common to every culture, and this one is deliberately planned to be as inclusive as possible. Mother Bagham-Barnes and Rabbi Montefiore will be coordinating with Imam Damra, Pastor McGillicuddy, and Guru Singh Khalsa, which you would know if you'd read the enclosed program.

As for the food, I will be serving hot appetizers and a selection of alcohol, not gillywater. Good heavens.

Yours,

Minerva

Reply to Minerva McGonagall's invitation from Severus Snape:


My dear Minerva:

Are you out of your mind?

A church service of Thanksgiving? Have half your guests ever so much as set foot in a church except for weddings and funerals? Can Lupin even enter a church without igniting, let alone take Communion? Are you certain Lovegood won't bring her crumpet-coated snack cakes or whatever she's calling her latest wildlife “discovery”?

And a “collation”? Do you think tea sandwiches and gillywater will be enough to satisfy the Weasleys, especially the ones who are playing professional Quidditch?

Please rethink this.

Challenge 759: Snape and The Order of the Phoenix

As a secret member of this group, Snape I'm sure had opinions about the other members. One does wonder how he'd be treated by them. Are they friends, or merely an imposed obligation? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and the Order of the Phoenix.

“And then there was Wormtail,” Lupin began, and Severus downed a headache draught.

“Spare me the details. I had to live with him during summer hols and am far too familiar with his habits.”

“Then you won't be surprised to learn that he chewed his way through the Historical Monument to Astronomical Wizardry,” said Lupin, rubbing at his temples. “Even Sirius was angry at him, the stupid git.”

Severus shoved a second headache draught in Lupin's direction. “He ate my copy of The Suicide Club. Said the ink tasted good.”

Lupin sighed. “Like I said, stupid git.”

“Not just Grim effluvia, as you so quaintly put it,” Lupin snarled, and Severus stopped writing. Lupin normally was the most even-tempered dunderhead he knew, but clearly he had his limits. “Prongs wasn't precisely the most continent creature in the world.”

Severus closed his girdle book. “Let me guess. He'd had a fight with Lily and decided to work out his sorrows by destroying Black property.”

“They weren't even dating, you git,” said Lupin. “He had too much ice cream even though he was lactose intolerant..

Severus winced. No wonder the lawn had had such a peculiar smell.

Lupin blinked. “My toileting habits? What are you talking about?”

Severus curled his lip. “Your effluvia stripped the paint from the Gazebo of the Four Humors and your scat nearly killed half the imported aromatics. Lucius was - “

“My effluvia? What are you talking about? I used the loo before I changed!” Lupin looked genuinely annoyed for once. “It was Sirius who had an extra glass of butterbeer before we apparated!”

“Well. That certainly explains a few things.” Severus pulled out his girdle book and jotted down a few notes. “Who knew Grim piss was so toxic?”

“Severus?”

Severus did his best not to wince. “Yes, Lupin? What did you want?”

“I saw the headlines about the Malfoys' party. I'm very sorry to hear about the pleasaunce and wondered if you would express my sympathies to Narcissa,” said his old nemesis. “Sirius took me and the lads once for a run. It was beautiful.”

Narcissa had been furious about the werewolf scat and had all but demanded Severus brew something to remove its taint from “Versatility's” masterwork. “Best not to, Lupin. She's still annoyed over losing an entire flowering quince due to your toileting habits.”

This next group is not one of Snape's favorites. He certainly has a long and fraught history with them, anyway. So, how does he handle them, and what if they had all survived? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and the Marauders.

Article from the Daily Prophet, undated:


DEATH EATER DISCO PARTY ENDS IN DISASTER!

Malfoy Magna, Wilts – A reunion for Slytherin Old Boys devolved into a brawl that severely damaged a Grade II listed peacock hatchery and a three hundred year old pleasaunce originally landscaped by Procyon “Versatility” Black.

“This wasn't supposed to happen,” said property owner Lucius Malfoy. “I had no idea Rookwood was mixing controlled substances for Muggles, let alone selling them at 1970's-themed dance halls....”


“Now do you understand why I didn't attend?” Severus nudged the Prophet in Minerva's direction.

“Most definitely,” said Minerva.

Minerva stared. “He – Lucius – is he an unregistered Animagus? I could see his form being pale, but - “

“Nothing so logical.” Severus rolled his eyes and made a vague flapping gesture. “He thinks squawking and chasing the peafowl into the reflecting pool is amusing, especially when he's had too much to drink.”

“Dear heavens, I had no idea.”

“Then there's Goyle Senior, who starts bawling about a girl who threw him over and moved to America to teach at Ilvermorny, and Rookwood chattering about bloodlines and - “

Minerva threw up her hands. “Enough!”

“'Conditions of your parole'?” Minerva pursed her lips. “Severus. I've seen your paperwork. There is no such clause prohibiting you from seeing your former associates, especially on a social occasion. You are perfectly free to attend the Malfoys' party.”

“You know that. I know that. The Malfoys, however, do not.” Severus raised an eyebrow as he retrieved the invitation. “I take it you've never attended one of Narcissa's brawls?”

“I've never had the pleasure.”

“Spending several hours watching Lucius imitate one of his own peacocks is not pleasurable,” said Severus. “Exactly the opposite, truth be told.”

Letter from Severus Snape to Narcissa Malfoy responding to her invitation of even date.

Dear Narcissa,

As much as I appreciate the fine cuisine provided by your elves, I unfortunately must decline your kind invitation to a Walpurgis reunion. The conditions of my parole are such that associating with so many known Death Eaters at one time might attract the attention of the Aurors, and I'm sure that is not the sort of “special fireworks” you had in mind to end. Perhaps luncheon before the fall term begins?

Please give my regards to Lucius and Draco.

Sincerely yours,

S. Snape

Text of invitation received by alumni of Slytherin House and supporters of the political and social ideals expressed by the late T.M. Riddle:


“Old times are not forgotten, nor are the friendships forged in days gone past. Though some of those we held so dear have passed on, may their memory remain ever green.”

Phineas Nigellus Black, Eulogy for an Unnamed Friend


You are cordially invited to a grand leveé to commemorate the work and legacy of the Knights of Walpurgis, with dinner, dancing, and special fireworks display to follow. RSVP by owl to N. Malfoy, Malfoy Manor, Wilts.
